A leading manufacturer of air brake components wanted to migrate from their existing bubble leak test system to a helium leak test system for testing their air brake actuators. The system would require tooling for multiple part models. Additional requirements included:

  • Ability to inteface hard tooling with parts with loose dimensional tolerancing
  • Simple operator loading process with hard tooling
  • Address permeation issues of the actuator bladder
  • Option for operator or robot loading
  • Option for helium mixing

We engineered a helium hard vacuum leak test system with dual test chamber tooling interfaced to the FLEXSTATION.

Key Features

  • Custom tooling for to fit multiple models of air brake actuators for trucks and buses. 
  • FLEXSTATION configurable software and hardware
